Wireless to Ethernet Bridging
Has anybody done this? It should work in theory, but JamLink will not detect the Mac address of my device. The strange this is that it worked earlier.

Same thing here!!! Jamlink not detected. Any solution?

I've got a solution in place doing this. It depends largely on how well your router in question actually handles running in bridge mode. Not all devices perform as bridges equally well. I'm running DD-WRT firmware on my router in question and had to in order to get the Jamlink functioning smoothly. Bridge mode wasn't supported in a way the Jamlink could use with the stock firmware. You've also got to make sure you have enough addresses in your DHCP pool to support extra devices since you can't set the Jamlink to a static, or you need to set up a static address via MAC address on your main router.

Be aware that the extra latency introduced by using WiFi as a bridging methodology will likely force you to run at a lower sample rate with higher latency. I have to run at 22kHz and a latency of around 10 to make a clean connection with my work partner who's using the WiFi bridge. The extra time required to packetize data and send it via WiFi just adds too much latency in and of itself at high sample rates. You'll end up with lots of clicking. Connecting the Jamlink back to your main router or a switch physically attached to your main router is vital to running at high sample rates with low latency.
